You guys, I have been waiting for AGES to tell you this but I couldn’t because I didn’t want to run in to any trouble at work. But now I can finally tell you…
I’M MOVING TO LA!!!!
So, yeah. This is pretty much awesome.
Like a lot of people, I was always attracted to the idea of LA and moving to California. LA has always seemed to me like a place of huge opportunity and amazing weather. This idea was founded on things I had read and seen on TV, but I had never been there before this January. But when I got off the plane at LAX, within 15 minutes I turned to my aunt and uncle and told them I was going to move there. And I was not bullshitting them.
Columbus will always hold a special place in my heart. I’ve spent the past 8 years here and I’ve grown so much. I don’t even really recognize myself as that 18 year old my parents dropped off at the dorms. I have the best friends here and there’s a lot of things I love about this city, but I feel like my life has grown stagnant and I need a change. A BIG change.
So, basically the past 4 months have consisted of me saving money by driving for Uber and trying to get this blog off the ground. Because guess what else? I will be pursuing blogging and freelance projects full time in LA! It’s a pretty huge leap but I’m just going to jump and I have faith that there will be a net to catch me.
In the next couple of weeks I will be finishing giving away most of my possessions, moving out of my apartment, and driving out west with my mom. I hope you like my travel posts, because there’s a lot of those on the horizon!
It’s all happening people!!!!
So what are your thoughts on this? Have you ever made a big move before? Do you live in LA and want to hang out? Do you want to crash on my couch? Let me know in the comments!
